Tonight was the season premiere of my hubby’s favorite show… NCIS. And I just had to say that I knew he was an addict when he looked me in the eye and said “You know I won’t be sitting at the table for dinner tonight, right?” ha! The man has the darn soundtrack…

So, onto what is actually going on in our lives. I got my first 100 on Chemistry homework this week! I also passed my second Medical Terminology quiz! I also had a chemistry test, but haven’t gotten the results for that yet!

My very good friend gave birth to her third BOY yesterday! He is such a dollbaby! I honestly don’t think I have ever seen a prettier newborn!Isn't he adorable?!!

We had such a wonderful weekend… I didn’t do nearly enough studying, but I’m totally okay with that! We actually didn’t do much, Tyler worked most of the weekend. But, we went to our first Community Group with some great friends of ours and some new people that we hope to become great friends with! I signed my mom and I up for Race for the Cure and this year, they are offering a free fitness program… which we skipped tonight, but typically it is twice a week. We did have a legitimate skip working out reason. I am a mo-ron and I read the site to say 6:30-7:30, and assumed it meant AM… OOPS! We showed up at the stadium this morning at 6:20. ha! Yea… it said PM. So, we went and worked out on our own and walked up Snake Hill in NLR and walked by the lake. It was fun! Then, later in the day, T and I took our boys on a walk. Sampson got super over heated (who knew how hot it was today… omg!) and we had to stop to let him rest in a stream. He loved it! Bear just loved getting out of the backyard. He loves going on walks around our house because we have a big open area behind our house and he can usually go a while without his leash attached. So all in all, it was a fantastic weekend and we are so grateful for this long weekend!



Quarter-life Crisis?

I just got done having a conversation with a friend who said she was going through a quarter-life crisis. I found this oddly amusing because in June, when I turned 24, I panicked. I was absolutely NOT okay with it. I am pretty sure that the week leading up to my birthday is what made me do the things I am doing today. I felt like I had not accomplished anything in life and a quarter of a century was just a year away! Growing up, I had always assumed I would be married by 18, pregnant by 19 and have a baby at 20. Just like my mom, my Mimi and my Memom… its what we do. But, 24 came around and I was in a job I HATED, I had no degree, AND I had no baby. All I had was the husband. What was that about? Well, one had to change and for some unknown reason, we decided to put my one and only dream of being a mommy aside and let me get through some school. I never wanted school, I wanted family.

Now that I am 3 weeks into school, I must say that so far, I think I made the right decision. I have mentioned it before and I’m sure I will continue mentioning, I let God take control of this one. I stopped, stepped back and asked what He thought I should do.

I’m pretty sure he was right.
